    A security researcher has published details of a vulnerability in a popular cloud storage drive after the company failed to issue security patches for over a year. Remco Vermeulen found a privilege escalation bug in Western Digital's My Cloud devices, which he said allows an attacker to bypass the admin password on the drive, gaining "complete control" over the user's data. The bug was "easy" to exploit, Vermeulen told TechCrunch in an email, and that it was remotely exploitable if a My Cloud device allows remote access over the internet — which thousands of devices are.
